The "F11" fault code will display if the Motor Control Unit (MCU) has an internal failure; repeating under or over voltage, or over current conditions. If failure occurs during high speed spin the door unlocks after 3 minutes. The MCU (Motor Control Unit) is located beside the motor. Here is the part to order.

He4t kenmore elite smartwash quietpak9. keeps flashing F2?


"F02" is a Long Drain error. This is an indication that there's an obstruction somewhere in the drainage system. Most commonly, the drain pump reservoir needs to be checked and cleaned. The access screws are on the bottom front edge of the lower toe panel directly below the door. You may need to prop up the two front feet of the washer to access them (a 2x4 works well for this). The following link explains:

It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced. If the pump requires replacement, the following link explains how:

Replacements can be purchased online at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com

Prices vary between these sites, so shop and compare.

So i put a load of clothes in my kenmore elite smartwasher and right after i start the washer the load stops and i get this message ''sud'', what does it mean?


IS IT AN OASIS? JUST RINSE THE SYSTEM OUT WITH WATER. YOU MIGHT BE USING THE WRONG DETERGENT. THOSE MACHINES REQUIRE "HE" DETERGENT.

Error "F6" on my Smartwash Quite Pak9


I believe the F6 code is a motor failure. I suggest you call a pro to come out and look at it.

My Kenmore Elite Smartwash control locked light went on after I finished a load. Now no buttons work. How do I unlock the controls?


Just remember, the instructions are printed near the button. This features locks and unlocks the control panel as a designed safety feature to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. In addition, if you get error codes, or the panel starts flashing or freezes up, sometimes these errors can be erroneous. Unplugging the unit for 30 minutes will reset the Central Control Unit (CCU). This is the main "brain" of the washer. Any error code following a computer reset, is usually a genuine problem. If you ever have questions about this washer in the future, please keep me in mind. Congrats on getting it working again!
